“A Well Preserved Village.”
Review of Streetsville

Streetsville
Ranked #5 of 127 things to do in Mississauga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Streetsville was developed by Timothy Street, who was originally an American frontiersman and Loyalist. In 1821 he built a 5 to 6-metre high dam diagonally across the Credit River just north of where Main Street meets the river. His water powered grist and saw mills along with his distillery, carding mill, and tannery supported the rapid growth of the population in this fertile area.

Many of the buildings that now line Queen Street date back to the mid-1800s when Streetsville was the commercial and social centre of the surrounding lands. Streetsville's first store, Montreal House, at Queen and Pearl, is still in use as is its second store, now a pizza restaurant, diagonally across the intersection. As it was a day's coach ride from Toronto, it had several taverns, hotels and inns and a few of those buildings still remain in use today. I frequently enjoy a pleasant stroll through this unique village and take advantage of some of its fine shops and restaurants.

Small little place with some interesting looking old houses, well connected to the rest of the Mississauga.
Fabulous fireworks.
Still have not had checked out the bread & honey festival, but hopefully someday I will...

Nice quaint strip pretty much in the heart of Mississauga, along Mississauga Road north of Eglinton. Great place to go for a walk, coffee, ice cream. Cute little shops and some lovely restaurants. Nice to escape from the large plaza's and strip malls. Pretty busy in the summer. Lovely atmosphere.

You get the feeling that you are in a small town place while still in the city. The shops and restaurants are cute. Almost feels like going for a drive to an upscale little town in the country.

A cute, quaint town within the city of Mississauga. Quite a few shops to browse, restaurants to try and coffee shops to sit in or outside on a warm day. Adequate parking behind most of the stores.
